Like her A Study of Philippine Games (UP Press 2001), Mellie Leandicho Lopez's A Handbook of Philippine Folklore is expected to be another landmark publication. The voluminous book provides a range of international theories and methodologies in analytical folklore investigations and a classification scheme based on genre is offered as the system of taxonomy for Philippine traditional materials. Lopez counts on the regional folklorists to refine the classification according to the texts of their respective areas. The different genres, too, are explained and examined in another part of Lopez's study. The reader will definitely find interesting and useful, the illustrative examples for each genre.
